This half-day class helps small, technology entrepreneurs and businesses assess their eligibility to receive R&D funding through the government’s Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) and Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) programs. Through these programs, 11 federal agencies make over $2 billion in high-risk, non-dilutive capital available to innovative small companies annually.

Attendees will learn SBIR/STTR program basics, including: program purpose, eligibility, sources of funding and tools for proposal development. It is designed to provide enough information for attendees to determine if they would like to seriously pursue a grant or contract proposal.
